Noah

Toddler in small kiddie pool

Noah and his parents, Kristina and Matthew, have been on a challenging journey of surgeries, procedures and healing. Noah was born with a congenital heart defect and received donor milk from Mothers’ Milk Bank of North Texas. The immunological and protective properties of breastmilk were essential in keeping Noah strong and healthy. When Kristina’s own supply of breastmilk declined, Cook Children’s Medical Center stepped in and ordered donor milk as a part of his medical treatment. Kristina says, “I cannot thank the donor moms enough! It truly has been such a blessing to have donor milk, and I believe Noah would not have healed as well if we did not have this option. I wish I could hug each and everyone who donates!”
